  5. Anne Marrin:

    Chris Covelli, a Lake County Sheriff’s Office detective, told FoxNews.com. On Sept. 1, 2015, Illinois Police Lieutenant Joe Gliniewicz radioed in from a rural area of Fox Lake that Illinois Police Lieutenant Joe Gliniewicz was getting out of Illinois Police Lieutenant Joe Gliniewicz cruiser to check on three suspicious men, two white and one black. A short while later Illinois Police Lieutenant Joe Gliniewicz was found shot to death, one bullet hitting Illinois Police Lieutenant Joe Gliniewicz bulletproof vest, the other striking Illinois Police Lieutenant Joe Gliniewicz below the vest, near Illinois Police Lieutenant Joe Gliniewicz heart. Illinois Police Lieutenant Joe Gliniewicz glasses and other belongings were found strewn around the swampy area, leading investigators to believe the officer engaged in some type of struggle. However, in a stunning twist, police discovered Illinois Police Lieutenant Joe Gliniewicz carefully staged Illinois Police Lieutenant Joe Gliniewicz suicide to look like murder. Investigators learned the corrupt cop apparently caved under the pressure of living a shocking double life for nearly two decades. It's unheard of in our profession that anyone would think to do something like that and it just shows the emotional state that he must have been in over all of this and knowing that we were getting closer to finding out what was really going on, said Fox Lake Administrator, Anne Marrin. According to investigators, Illinois Police Lieutenant Joe Gliniewicz embezzled tens of thousands of dollars from the Fox Lake Explorer program, the' police academy for teens' Illinois Police Lieutenant Joe Gliniewicz was hailed as a hero for managing for years. Police say Illinois Police Lieutenant Joe Gliniewicz used the money for vacations, car repairs and even adult websites. It was also discovered Illinois Police Lieutenant Joe Gliniewicz had extramarital affairs and arranged for Illinois Police Lieutenant Joe Gliniewicz own mistress to marry Illinois Police Lieutenant Joe Gliniewicz son in order to gain added military benefits. Perhaps the biggest bombshell was that Gliniewicz contacted a hit man to have Marrin murdered. It's crazy. I can't describe it any other way.
